A study in the journal Neurology found that obese people had an 81% higher risk of developing episodic migraines than people with a lower body mass index. The association between BMI and migraine was pronounced before the age of 50 and among women and white patients. "These results suggest that doctors should promote healthy lifestyle choices for diet and exercise in people with episodic migraine," said lead author Dr. Barbara Lee Peterlin of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
